Labia Minora Plasty is the removal of unwanted tissue of the smaller inner vaginal lips. Women may request this procedure to change elongated labia since puberty, after pregnancy or with aging or to fix an uneven appearance.
Common complaints include pinching, rubbing of undergarments, an embarrassing bulge in gym wear or swimsuits, and discomfort during intercourse.
The surgery is done in the office under local anesthesia (avoiding the cost of OR and Anesthesiology fees). As opposed to using a laser, I use a surgitron, which utilizes radiofrequency waves to perform the procedure; it is much less destructive leading to less scar formation and even healing. It is completed in approximately 60 minutes.
